WEBINAR 1: Joy to the World: Observer for Content Generation Will Speed New Stories to Air
Monday, Dec. 2 at 11 a.m. EST
Andrew Sachs, Volicon vice president of product management, will begin the holiday cheer with "Joy to the World: Observer for Content Generation Will Speed New Stories to Air." In this webinar, Sachs will discuss how the Observer(R) can empower broadcasters to provide content to consumers anytime, anywhere, in a multiplicity of formats.

WEBINAR 2: Rockin' Around Volicon's Media Intelligence Platform
Tuesday, Dec. 3 at 11 a.m. EST
On the second day of the series, Gary Learner, CTO at Volicon, will continue the cheer and present "Rockin' Around Volicon's Media Intelligence Platform." Learner will examine how dramatic industry changes such as the transition to digital, the rapidly rising number of channels and outlets, the explosion in regulatory requirements, and the growing importance of data have made real-time access to the broadcast product and related metadata a significant benefit across the media enterprise. Volicon's MIP was created specifically to help companies leverage video, audio, and data in combination in areas ranging from engineering to the executive suite, and Learner will provide an overview of the critical applications the new platform supports.

WEBINAR 3: We Wish You a Merry CC Text and Government Violation-Free New Year
Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 11 a.m. EST
Keith DesRosiers, Volicon director of solutions engineering, will take the reins on day three with "We Wish You a Merry CC Text and Government Violation-Free New Year." The 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA) states that full-length, pre-recorded programming already shown on U.S. television with closed captions will also require captions when it is distributed over IP. Addressing this new regulation governing the accessibility of IP-delivered content, DesRosiers will provide details of legislation mandating the presence of closed captions and discuss the actions providers need to take to ensure legal compliance, as well as viewers' quality of experience.
Prize: Bose(R) QuietComfort(R) Noise Cancelling(R) Headphones
